Yeah, but that description is for the currently-shipping version of Office, not 2004 ... they do the same thing over at M$ - they describe the current line-up but don't say what version of VPC will be shipping with 2004 ...<br><br>=)<br><br>***matt<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...

I'd just buy a cheapo PC and be done with it. Emulation is never that good. I mean I have it, have used it for this and that. Unless you only have very infrequent use for VPC a cheap PC is a much better idea I think.<br><br>

Or if you have a PowerBook and work away from home.<br><br>Other than that, I agree - a $300 PC will do just as good (if not better) a job.<br><br>
